Kevin Feige reveals why Chadwick Boseman's character was not recast in Black Panther 2

Feige has reflected on why it was "too soon" to recast Chadwick Boseman's character in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The actor, who played T'Challa in 2018's Black Panther, died at the age of 43 in 2020 following a battle with colon cancer. Previously, Feige and director Ryan Coogler confirmed that they wouldn't recast T'Challa, and in an interview with Empire magazine, the Marvel Studios president insisted they made the right call.
